Two residents of Wentzville, Missouri, one 25 years old and the other 2 years old, were injured in a Missouri car accident located on Route N and South Point Prairie Road in St. Charles County. The accident occurred on June 10, 2012 and happened at 5:40pm.
Earon M. Tourville of Wentzville, Misouri, age 16, was driving southbound in a 1999 Chevrolet Tahoe on South Point Prairie Road. According to the traffic report, Tourville was also traveling with Jace C. Parker, age 2. Meagan K. Parker of Wentzville, Missouri, age 25, was traveling eastbound on Route N in her 2001 Ford Focus. When Tourville approached the intersection between Route N and South Point Prairie Road, Tourville came to a stop. However, he did not yield to Parker’s vehicle and attempted to turn onto Route N. Instead, Tourville’s Chevrolet Tahoe collided with the left side of Parker’s Ford Focus. Tourville’s vehicle sustained moderate damage while Parker’s vehicle sustained extensive damage due to the collision.
EMS workers determined that Jace C. Parker and Megan K. Parker were both injured in the accident. St. Charles County Ambulance later transported both to Mercy Hospital in Creve Coeur, Missouri.
It is important for Missouri drivers to realize that if they are traveling with minors or infants, a Missouri car accident is always possible. Luckily, there are Missouri laws in place that regulate to what extent safety devices are needed for minors and infants. As the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and many other sources have noted over the past several years, safety devices like seat belts can only help potential Missouri car accident victims in terms of not allowing them to be Missouri car accident fatalities.
